Get to know the typical champenois village where you’ll be staying at Au 1894!

Located at the heart of the Côte des Blancs vineyard region, famous for its Chardonnay grapes that make Blanc de blancs champagne, Avize is a village that has the Grand cru appellation for the high quality of its soil.

Some 270 hectares of vines surround the village (you’ll find them just 100m away from Au 1894)! Avize has under 2000 inhabitants, contains 12 kilometers of cellars, has been home to many winegrowers for several generations, and champagne houses such as De Cazanove, Koch or De Saint-Gall were created here. Others such as Louis Roederer own plots in this village. Here, you also find an institution that is unique in our region: the high school of Champagne, where new generations learn all about the different professions related to vine and wine, and which produces the champagne Sanger.
